All transfer students should consult with the department or program chair to clarify specific major/program requirements in the transfer.

In order for students to be endorsed for certification in education, they must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 GPA or higher in the major(s), teaching minor(s), and professional education courses. If a student has a 2.750 GPA or higher the basic skills testing is not required.
